Google’s Assistant is ready finally to take on Siri on Apple’s turf: the iPhone. Now, you can play around with chatbot on downloading Allo, the only messenger app of Google’s mobile, but it enjoys limited functionality. However, thanks to new changes that there is a Google standalone Assistant app on Apple’s App Store, available only the US now. The Google Assistant takes some time in downloading and what; it is lot smarter and friendlier than Siri.
The apparent barrier is that Siri is baked into iOS, while here you need to download Google Assistant as a separate app. Besides, accessing Siri is very easy as holding the iPhone’s home button, but with Google Assistant (as with Alexa, Cortana and all other third-party assistants), you must take an extra step to launch an app. however, if you own an Android phone, Google Assistant is sure to go without download anything at all.
As expected, on first launching the Google Assistant on the iPhone, it asks you to log with your Google account. On doing this, it introduces itself to you and invites you to ask anything that you wish. Press the icon of the microphone at the center to offer a voice command, or without disturbing people around you, you may silently hit the icon of the keyboard and type your query.
The Google Assistant is ready to allow you to send a message or make a call. However, it is not easier than Siri. To call anyone, it brings the name and triggers a call that you may confirm or cancel and for texting a message, it asks for message and shows the message app to choose to send or not. But, Siri messages can be sent even without opening the app.
